Hello InstaFam,

First, a big thank you!

I couldn't have imagined, it'll be so much fun to cook and share recipes and have you all love it and even try it. It's been such an adventure.

As a few of you know, that I also make chocolates and have another account @auchocolat_store . It's been a business idea tryout and I would love, love to see it grow into a full scale venture.

So with bittersweet feelings, I'm closing @mortar.aur.pestle indefinitely, to work and grow @AuChocolat_Store.

I'll be forever grateful, if you guys can follow me and support my journey on @auchocolat_store

Lots of love,

@mortar.aur.pestle

Fell for a Falafel ๐Ÿง†๐Ÿฅ™๐Ÿฅฐ

This vegan, protein rich and nutrient rich deep fried ball of  goodness ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Snack on it or make a meal out if it. Makes you feel good and full either way....

Ingredients;
1 cup soaked Chickpeas (overnight). This is the only time consuming process.

1 cup of Coriander leaves
1 cup of Parsley
1 cup of Dill leaves
1/4 cup of Mint leaves
1 cup of Green onion leaves
3-4 green chillies
7-8 cloves of garlic

1 TSP cumin powder
1 TSP coriander powder
1 TSP chilli powder
1 TSP Salt 
1 TSP black pepper
1 TSP olive oil (optional)
1/2 TSP Baking powder (optional)

Process:

Dry the soaked Chickpeas completely.

Rough chop all the leaves, remove thick stalks.

In a food processor, add all the ingredients and pulse 3-4 times. 

*** If you don't have a processor use the spice grinder jar of your mixer grinder and do it in batches or simply remove the blade and attach it to a bigger jar.  That yields the best result. Fast and precise.

You should reach a minced state.... Not a paste or puree but you can still see the chickpeas, garlic , herbs etc. Not addition if liquids needed...

Scrape all of the mixture into a plate and let it rest in the fridge for 15-30 minutes.

Make patty shapes/ball shapes with 1.5 tbsp of the mixture.

Heat oil in a pan for deep frying, once hot, carefully add the falafel to the oil. Fry till evenly golden brown on all sides.
Rest for 2 minutes.

P.s. you can bake these in the oven/ fry them in the aur fryer too... 

Enjoy hot with Tahini sauce/ Mint Yogurt Dip/ hummus/ make yourself a pita pocket/ a roll...

The falafel should be crispy on the outside and fluffy and green on the inside... ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿฅ™๐Ÿง†
